... And, those tailpipes are going to be crushed flat, like beer cans, the first time they encounter a serious rock garden.
You're right, but the tow hooks right next to the exhaust tips will help protect them. However, this vehicle isn't exactly marketed as a rock crawler.

Looks good but my guess is it will be unobtanium for a couple for years and the back seat is still a little too small to be useful.

Is the Raptor marketed as a rock crawler? I didn't think so . I thought they were just Mall crawlers lol

Hmmm Still waiting on my 2023 Ranger to come off that line. The wait, as well as many other reasons, is why I drive a JT now and wont be picking up the Ranger.

I'm wondering if the raptor ranger is based off the braptor or the bronco. The braptor is a hell of an off roader, arguably the best stock off roader currently available with 37s, super long travel ifs, and big beefy components. If this is based off the braptor, this will be probably the best stock off road truck out there, if the ranger raptor is based on the regular bronco though it will still be decent but a solid second place in terms of capability.

Edit: Looking at the picture more it looks like small tires and not braptor level build, so it goes from interesting to meh to me.

Meh. The only thing that is something I'd want is the MAX AC button in fords. That is a brilliant button.

to me this looks more like competition for the Taco, than the JT

Have you seen interiors on higher trim level Fords? They are usually pretty nice.
